The concept of precision on temperature does bring something different from both the fish and rice. Tunas are top grade stuff, also a few other prices are unique - and taste good obviously.
Not sure how to secure a place here, seems the reservation opening in weeks ahead rather than months, much shorter and not great for planning. Do need some luck to be here.


Chef is exquisite and has his own philosophy of sushi. It was a great experience tasting traditional yet different sushi.


It’s my third time been here. Today I learned Chari (sushi rice) and fish has its own temperature. Chef thinks the best match for each sushi.
Normally I don’t eat any form of clam because the distinguish taste but today after I tried it. I really loved it.
Super delicious meal.
More than half of the dishes I loved it so much!! Coming back in May.
